A SUPPORT group for heart disease sufferers has been set up in the county.

Herefordshire Cardiac Support Group held its first meeting at Hereford United’s Starlite Rooms.

The group is aimed at supporting those with heart issues and their family, and is supported by Herefordshire Cardiac Rehabilitation Service and the Citizen’s Advice Bureau.

Support group chairman Tony Vaughan said: “We are here for anybody who needs to talk, because it can be difficult to come to terms with heart disease.”

The group holds a coffee club at Hereford Leisure Centre between noon and 1pm every Friday.
